Best Answer

The western lowland gorilla has a brownish-gray color with reddish highlights. The eastern lowland gorilla has a black color. The mountain gorilla is black like the eastern lowland gorilla, but the hair is longer. The adult male who controls the group develops silver hairs on his back, thus the name silver-back.
